Copenhagen This Summer

Published Date Author: , April 30th, 2014

Little Mermaid, Copenhagen, DenmarkCopenhagen is gearing up to host the 59th annual Eurovision Song Contest from May 5 – 10, but that’s not the only honor bestowed upon the Danish capital this year. The renowned environmentally friendly city has also been named European Green Capital for 2014 by the European Environment Commission. Here’s why that matters to visitors.

A Greener Eurovision

This year, Copenhagen’s green aspirations will play a major role in its hosting of the Eurovision Song Contest. The city claims that all aspects of the event production will be carried out in an eco-friendly way, from food and beverages provision, to transportation.

The city has constructed new bicycle paths connecting the Eurovision Island (the area surrounding Refshaleoen, an abandoned shipyard) to the city center, making it as easy as possible for visitors to join in with local bicycle culture and choose an eco-friendly (and cheap) mode of transport.
